# How to insert spacing for start of paragraph?

How would I add some spacings starting at the black arrows in the picture below? As in, I am trying to move the text towards the right a bit, like starting a new paragraph. Thanks.

 The problem is that you use \\\\ to start a new paragraph. Just use an empty line. (Thanks David) [/Edit]

You probably want to use

\setlength{\parindent}{1em}


or a more convenient length. Though 1em is quite common.

also you should always start a paragraph with a blank line not with \\\\  –  David Carlisle Mar 31 '12 at 17:30
@DavidCarlisle whoops, I hadn't checked his code example well enough. Only if there was no \usepackage{parskip}. –  jmc Mar 31 '12 at 17:33
thanks jmc and David! –  Gary Mar 31 '12 at 17:39
